    Each event I have attended I have come back to the department with additional ideas of how to tackle re-occurring problems. Through discussion with other decontamination services providers I was able to identify the corrective actions required by listening to what others had tried and found to be most effective. I was also able to discuss methods which we had found effective to the others within the group. A problem shared is a problem halved.

    Issues raised at recent external audits were a useful topic as non-conformance’s raised tend to re-occur in different departments and there tends to be a theme, it was good to understand what auditors in general have been concentrating on in recent months.

    The conference was well organised and again provided lots of useful information. I would certainly recommend others to attend.
